Local authentic shops have unique stories to tell and are sadly struggling the most to survive these hard times. This series of photos come from visits I have made all over the country to try and promote these precious gems.
Jamil Ghanem (88 y.o.) runs his authentic mini-market in Baabdate since 1982.
“François Lebnen” runs his little bakery “فرن لبنان” in Antelias since 1962.
“Em Nehmen” runs this shop in Achrafieh since 1982. She doesn’t even remember the year her husband opened it. It might be during the 50s or even before.
This authentic mini-market in Jub-Jannine is open since more than 30 years.
Another original local shop in Beit-Chabeb.
